This box set is great for Joe Meek enthusiasts, because it covers almost all the different periods of Meek's production. However, it's probably best suited for hardcore fans, since this includes very different styles of music, and hardly all of the songs will appeal to the listener in the same way. The first cd has some very interesting jazz recordings, in which Joe had worked as an engenieer. However, it also carries some recordings where you can't find any 'special sounding stuff' that you would normally associate with Joe Meek. From the second cd on, all songs are very 'Meeked', but that also doesn't mean they are all good. Since there are circa 28 tracks per cd, this may make the whole experience a bit 'too much' for the less interested ear. However, for fans it's a real trip to 'Meekland'. One of the most interesting things in the box are the three versions of Telstar, that give you a hint of how he came up with that crazy song. And Heinz's version of Dylan's 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright' actually doesen't sound too bad either. The box also contains a really cool book with Meek's tragic life story and quotes from people that worked with him, like John Leyton and Ritchie Blackmore. To sum it up, if you you're a fan, buy it now and thank yourself later. If you're not a fan, but want to know more of Meek, the best choice might the 2 cd compilation "Joe Meek - The Alchemist Of Pop".
